The flirty fringe and light linen construction of our Sardinia Beach Towels are the perfect addition to your island adventure. Like the sun worshippers we are, wrap our towel around your warmed shoulders post sunset for a stroll back to your abode before an evening of festivities, or bring the party to the beach and use as a beach blanket.

Our Palomino Beach Bag is begging to be used as the ultimate picnic basket for an other-worldly alfresco dining experience. Toss in some fresh olives from the vineyard, slices of delicious jamón Iberico, and a crisp Vinho Verde wine into the dreamy mix and watch as the Sunday scaries disappear.

Synonymous with la dolce vita and summertime, the Tuscan countryside is a perfect place to escape with our Holbox Linen Picnic Blanket in tow. Sipping on a heaping glass of Sassacaia as you watch the sunset over cypress tree lined hills, what could possibly be better?

Let the EDM music pulse through your daytime dance parties and lull you to sleep on the ethereal beaches that surround Ibiza. As light and airy as the breeze through your casita, toss in our Madrid Throw Blanket to complement a perfect siesta before heading into the night.

California Love

Adding in our Linen Bamboo Robe is a no brainer when it comes to visiting one of our favorite Cali destinations. Laguna Beach is brimming with sun-kissed surfers, a variety of healthy and flavorful restaurants, and local artisans, but the real draw: taking in the salty ocean breeze off the cliffs and into the Pacific with a spicy margarita in hand.
